Indiana's Only Holocaust Museum

In 1995, Eva Mozes Kor opened the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, with a mission to prevent prejudice and hatred through education about the Holocaust. Thousands of people, including many school groups, have visited CANDLES since it opened. In 2003, the museum was destroyed by a hate-filled arsonist. Eva vowed to rebuild, and with the help of a generous public outpouring of support, the museum was rebuilt and reopened in 2005. CANDLES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center will be open to the public from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Eastern Time on Monday, October 11, 2021. We understand that our current hours are limited and hope this extra day allows for students, teachers, and the rest of the general public to take the opportunity to visit the museum by utilizing a day that students and teachers get the time off from school for Vigo County School Corporation's Fall Break.
